National Park Week Begins With Fee Free Day

SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – Only three states have more national parks than Utah, and outdoor enthusiasts can enjoy the Beehive State’s “Mighty 5” and other national monuments for free this Saturday.

This weekend kicks off National Park Week, with themed days through April 25.

Saturday is “Park Rx” Day, and entrance fees will be waived at National Park Service locations nationwide.

Volunteer Sunday follows and Military Monday is a great time to remind those who serve that they and their families are entitled to free annual passes.

The National Park Service has also released a new app ahead of next week.

The app is incredibly helpful when you’re looking to explore your own neck of the woods — lists of parks pop up with maps and information at your fingertips.

Users can use their location to tailor their search, but they can also just swipe across the country to find parks and NPS locations.

So consider the “Mighty 5,” but don’t forget about Dinosaur, Rainbow Bridge and Natural Bridges national monuments, along with Golden Spike National Historical Park — they’re free Saturday as well, which saves anywhere from $20 to $35 a car or $10-$20 per person if you walk in.
